Top 10 Parks and Nature Attractions in Greater Manchester
Monday 5 June is World Environment Day, an awareness day which spreads a message of how important the environment and nature is to us. We are surrounded by many beautiful things in nature, and in Manchester especially, there are a number of parks and nature attractions where you can explore this for yourself.
It is our duty as a community to protect our environment and there are many things that we can do to contribute to this. For example, here at Redbank House we can:
- Turn off electrical devices when they’re not in use
- Walk or cycle to work
- Recycle materials
- Use sensored lights in the corridors
- Be sufficient with printing
Sometimes, we look outside and we see a miserable rainy day, just like today. However, for others, listening to the rain can be quite therapeutic and helps them to relax. It’s travelling in that type of weather which contributes to those Monday blues.
On a brighter note, there’s so much that nature has to offer us in order to take in the natural goodness of our city. And the parks and nature attractions around Manchester help us to celebrate our lovely local sights of nature.
